Excerpt from Can Adding Iron To Oceans Slow Global Warming :

"Where you have heavy rainfall you have forests, and where you have no rainfall you have deserts," he says. "And you have the same thing with iron falling from the atmosphere on the oceans." Thirty years ago, scientists started wondering whether they could create huge blooms of algae in the oceans by adding iron. In concept, the algae would also soak up huge amounts of carbon — carbon that's in the air and in the ocean as a result of our burning fossil fuels. Sending carbon to the sea floor could slow global warming. So Smetacek and his colleagues went to sea in 2004 to make algae blooms by adding iron to the water.
